2 Spathose is an iron ore that contains iron(II) carbonate, FeCO3. The percentage of iron(II) carbonate
in spathose can be determined by titration with acidified potassium dichromate(VI) solution using
a suitable indicator.
The ionic equation is shown below.
Cr2O72(aq) + 14H+(aq) + 6Fe2+(aq) 2Cr3+(aq) + 6Fe3+(aq) + 7H2O(l)
(a) A 5.00g sample of spathose was reacted with excess concentrated hydrochloric acid and then
filtered.
The filtrate was made up to 250cm3 in a volumetric flask with distilled water.

A 25.0cm3 sample of the standard solution required 27.30cm3 of 0.0200moldm3


dichromate(VI) solution for complete reaction.

(i) Calculate the amount, in moles, of dichromate(VI) ions used in the titration.

amount = ............................ mol [1]


(ii) Use your answer to (i) to calculate the amount, in moles, of Fe2+ present in the 25.0cm3
sample.

amount = ............................ mol [1]


(iii) Use your answer to (ii) to calculate the amount, in moles, of Fe2+ present in the 250cm3
volumetric flask.

amount = ............................ mol [1]


(iv) Use your answer to (iii) to calculate the mass of iron(II) carbonate present in the sample
of spathose.

mass = ............................ g [2]


(v) Calculate the percentage of iron(II) carbonate in the sample of spathose.

percentage of iron(II) carbonate = ............................ % [1]
